It's 'so bad' at Trump White House, says fired staffer Omarosa Manigault

"Omarosa was sacked three times on The Apprentice and this was the fourth time we let her go", Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said.

Deputy White House press secretary Raj Shah responded to Newman's comments, saying the White House wasn't taking her claims "very seriously".

Manigault, 44, was fighting back tears in her dramatic telling of what went down during her time in the White House.

"I mean, I tried to be that person and then all the people around him attacked me".

Later in Thursday's episode, Omarosa told Ross Mathews that accepting the political appointment in Trump's administration was "always about the country" and not President Trump.

"If I whisper into the microphone, nobody can hear me", said Cooper, whispering at his panel of talking heads following the segment in which Omarosa spoke about how she was "haunted" by Trump's tweets.

Manigault Newman left the White House in January after announcing she was leaving her role in December. Fans of "Celebrity Apprentice" recall her exploiting the death of her boyfriend Michael Clarke Duncan (of The Green Mile fame) to gain sympathy points from Donald Trump and get LaToya Jackson kicked off the show. "Like what is [Trump] going to tweet next?"

Manigault Newman, the self-proclaimed "queen of the boardroom", and Matthews are among the 11 celebrities who have moved into the Big Brother house to compete for a $250,000 grand prize.

In 15 games he played with the Cavaliers where he started in 14 games, Thomas averaged 14.7 points (3rd) and 4.5 assists (2nd). Thomas can give them quality point guard play and something to watch until Lonzo Ball returns from knee soreness.

When Matthews asked if people should be anxious, Manigault Newman nodded her head.

Multiple sources in and outside the Trump White House told The Daily Beast that, until recently, it was common practice for aides to slide into the Oval Office and distract and infuriate the president with pieces of negative news coverage.

"It's not gonna be okay, it's not", she said.

Mathews pressed Manigault Newman for reassurance that things will work out, but she replied, "No, it's not going to be OK. She has no contact now".

Let me remind you why, reportedly, Omarosa was finally booted out of the White House by John Kelly.

"I'm not there. It's not my circus, not my monkeys", she continued. Some reports indicate she was sacked and had to be dragged, kicking and screaming, from the White House.

"Since you're asking me, you stood strong by someone who you have known and have been loyal to, and have known for a long time who has supported you, and people judged you for that", Omarosa said.
